So we’ve all done a gallery wall. Remember those posters you put up on your bedroom wall as a kids?
Gallery wall. It just wasn’t as refined as we would have them look as adults.
I worked at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. for one year and it made me fall in love with art which is probably why I’m a huge proponent of gallery walls. You can mix and match pictures or have a consistent theme. Whatever you decide, have fun.
My latest project is you guessed it, a gallery wall full of black and white inspirational quotes because well we all need to be reminded to be great. Since I’m turning my home office into a cloffice (closet/office) I also added a few fashion pictures.
And I did it all for under $50. I purchased prints (the most expensive was $5) from www.etsy.com and went to Staples to have them printed on quality paper for less than $1/each. I used existing frames from Ikea (Ribba) and voila a chic wall was created.
You can find cheap frames at thrift stores and paint or purchase them inexpensively from a craft store.
I’ve incorporated gallery walls into dorm room projects, bathrooms and kids rooms. If you choose to do one in a kids room, allow the children to make their own art using paint colors from the colors scheme in their rooms for a cohesive look.
The fun thing about a gallery wall is that you can choose any layout, whether straight and coordinated or haphazard. I’ve done all types and am happy with each and every one.
